    New Neck Build - some advise

    Super glue and baking soda/bone dust. I collect the bone dust each time I file a new nut for this purpose. I have only had to use it once but apparently baking soda is just as good. Fill the slot with powder, drop in a tiny bit of super glue, wait a few minutes and re-file. Hope this helps...

    Chords to songs - who's right?

    And occasionally they post the correct chords. My band mate always turns up with charts from UG and I spend half the time pointing out the mistakes.

    New fingerboard in Australia

    I'd definitely try a shim first. Could just fix the issue and you'd still have the neck you (used to) like. Costs nothing to try.

    Do you take your pickguard off

    I take them off 335 style guitars as i feel it interferes with the symmetry. They look fine on a LP style and jazz boxes I think.

    Is my neck pocket too deep?

    To take up guitar building/playing/collecting you have to have deep pockets.

    What are your favorite Foreigner songs?

    Quite a few years ago an aquaintance showed me an album by a band called Black Sheep. The lead singer was Louis Grammatico. He later obviously anglicised his name and took up with Mick Jones (ex Spookytooth) and formed Foreigner. I never did get to hear the Black Sheep album. Do love...

    Small acoustic?

    I have one of these too. The finish is really good, solid top , back and sides , bone nut and saddle. After a fret dress this is my favourite couch guitar. As a bonus the travel bag is also very good.

    partscaster vintage bridge alignment question

    Scale length to the saddles would be the most important thing to get right. The bridge cavity can be altered as long as it isn't exposed and if the string holes don't line up you can use the bridge as a top loader. Not sure you could relocate the string through holes unless they are a fair way...

    Opinions on refinishing - changing the color of a guitar you love

    Just change the knobs and lose the pickguard. If you still don't like it you can change back. Re-finishing a hollow/semi hollow is a lot of work and if your'e not doing it yourself I imagine the cost would would pretty hefty.

    Breakfast lunch dinner, or breakfast dinner supper?

    I was born and raised in England. We had breakfast, dinner (as in school dinners, Sunday dinner), tea and often supper (crackers with cheese and tomato usually). After the main meal (tea) we would have "afters" ie. dessert. "What's for afters mum?"
